Who Are You Trying To Convince? Celebs Who Try to Sell Us On Their Relationships

Is it just us? Or do we hear more about these peoples’ boo-thangs/jump offs/spouses than we do about their actual careers? Are they just bragging or trying to distract us from what’s really going on?

Gabrielle Union

Have you been following these two on social media lately? It’s like Gabby thinks that if she posts enough pictures posing with Siovaughn’s ex-husband, we’ll all stop talking about the fact that Dwyane Wade had a love child with another woman. There aren’t enough Instagram filters in the world to make the world forget about that…and she shouldn’t either.

T.I. and Tiny

These two send each other sexy pictures and go on about each other in the media like there’s not a chick stalking Tiny on Instagram who’s possibly carrying T.I.’s baby.

Amina Buddafly

Starting out as someone’s side piece comes with a lot of insecurity. Maybe that’s why “Mrs. Pankey” keeps bragging about her marriage (like it isn’t to someone else’s common law husband).

Maybe the “Love & Hip-Hop” star should stop trying to convince the world that her marriage is right and do a different kind of damage control.

Kenya Moore and Her African Boyfriend

Kenya Moore sure talks about her African boyfriend a lot for no one to know who he is. Rumor has it, he’s Nigerian singer D’banj and we’ll all get a glimpse of him at the next reunion show. But none of this gossip has been confirmed.

We just hope he’s real, really into Kenya and willing to show up. We can’t take another Walter situation.

Kim Kardashian

We’re not the first ones to wonder if Kim and Kanye’s relationship isn’t at least part publicity stunt.

We’re trying to give them the benefit of the doubt, but we’re too busy waiting for their TV wedding special this fall.

Amber and Whiz Khalifa

We get it. Amber’s famous for being famous which means she’s got to create media buzz to stay relevant.

But we wish she didn’t do it with her relationship. We just can’t with these two and all this public spit swapping. Ya’ll are together. We get it. Now get a room.


Beyoncé jams, but it’s also TMI. We’re happy that Jay and Bey’s marriage is as steamy as ever, but we could have done with a little less detail.

We’re sure Blue agrees too. She’s going to hear that album one day  and never be able to get into a limousine again.


Amina isn’t the only mistress obsessed with flaunting her relationship. Joseline is so eager to snap pictures of Stevie J, she accidentally outed him with a mysterious white substance on his nose. 


It seems like the less we hear about T-Pain’s career, the more we hear about his relationship with his wife.

Apparently, he believes so strongly in his brand of “open relationship” (that only involves him sleeping with other women) that he went on VLAD TV to recommended that all women let their husbands have open relationships “to keep them faithful”.

Maybe you should stick to rapping, sir.

Evelyn Lozada

We hate to bring up old ish, but all these pics of Evelyn with her new boo Carl Crawford are making us nervous.

The last relationship Evelyn rushed into when her 15 minutes were fading didn’t end up so well. Hopefully this quickie engagement will go a little better.

Erica Mena and Cyn Santana

These two climb all over each other on Love & Hip-Hop so much, we’re starting to wonder if this is a real relationship or a publicity stunt. We guess we’ll find out after their proposed wedding special airs sometime later this year.

Mariah Carey

Is this love or publicity? Last February 14th, Mariah spent her Valentine’s Day sending these sexy photos to Nick Cannon…and the rest of the world.

Sometimes we wonder if Nick and Mariah are really in love or really trying to convince us they are.

Kevin Hart

Is it just us? Or was a big chunk of Kevin Hart’s new special about dogging his ex-wife. If he’s trying to joke his way out of us judging him for trading his wife in for a new model/rib, this is the wrong way to go about it.
